From Rania Matar’s photo series of adolescent girls in the bedrooms taken around the world. This photograph is of Zahra from Beirut, Lebanon."I spend time with each girl, so she is comfortable with me and eventually the photography session becomes a beautiful and intimate collaboration. I was discovering a person on the cusp on becoming an adult, but desperately holding on to the child she barely outgrew, a person on the edge between two worlds, trying to come to terms with this transitional time in her life and adjust to the person she is turning into."
